The Earth Scientist Sponsorship

NESTA offers the opportunity for organizations or major programs to sponsor an entire issue of TES. These issues typically focus entirely on the resources provided by the program, and offer an opportunity to highlight a suite of classroom activities and supporting science content for a specific program. Issue sponsors will be acknowledged in the publication. Recent examples include our Winter 2009 issue on Earth System Science sponsored by Pennsylvania State University, our Spring 2010 issue on the Oceans sponsored by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and our Fall 2010 issue on Rocks and Minerals sponsored by the Mineral Information Institute and the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration. For more information about issue sponsorship opportunities and costs for sponsorship, please be in touch with the NESTA Executive Director, Roberta Johnson, at rmjohnsn@nestanet.org.
